For batata puri

  • Firstly, make thin and medium size potato slices. Do not make long batata slices otherwise, puri will not puff up properly.
  • Besan batter should be slightly medium thick and have a coating consistency.
  • Lastly, for frying, add batata puri on high flame, and then on medium flame to make it crispy and golden brown. do not fry them on low flame otherwise, it absorbs oil and turns soggy.

For besan kadhi (chutney)

  • Firstly, ensure the quality of the besan flour is good and not stale. if it is stale, it will form lumps without the smooth consistency.
  • Cook kadhi (chutney) on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes, so besan is properly cooked and chutney becomes slightly thick.
  • The kadhi (chutney) has to be served warm or immediately after it is prepared. Once it is cooked, it may turn thicker in consistency hence add water before preheating it.
